    Been on and off SW now for months, and lost nothing, in fact I have gained weight lmao.

    But my heart has not been in it, nor my head, I am desperate to lose weight and need to lose around 50 pounds, would joining the SW site benefit me? I have not been a paid member before and going to a local meet doesnt really interest me at this stage.

    Is doing it from home using the Site any good? what are the advantages as opposed to doing it alone from someone elses books?

    Nightwolf,
    I have never done SW online but I have tried other diets online & they didn't work out for me. I like going to the group meetings each week, you get so much support & so many ideas, maybe you could go & sit in on one & see what you think after that.

    Good luck with your journey though whatever you decide.

    I recently changed from going to class to online and find it suits me perfectly. No diet will work though if you aren't commited to it so if you are not sure then I would say save your money until you feel ready.

    Hi Nightwolf. as you said your head and heart havnt been in it, and I believe that you need that motivation to start on the road. I know taht I have needed to lose weight for years but couldnt be bothered if I am honest. It wasnt until I decided that I didnt want to stay this way forever that made me join slimming world and stick to it. With every pound of weight lost I have felt better about myself, more in control and am determined to get to the end-but its not easy. Start with small steps, look at what it is about the extra weight that bothers you? Then go back to basics, joining a class can be a real stepping stone, if not write everything down, don't try and fool yourself that you are sticking to it when you aren't-I am very good at that! lol! Good luck, use this site, it is a realy help-we are all in the same boat!! Good luck Tracey x ps sorry for the ramble, but I know where you are, I've been there! x

    I think it is maybe best to have alook at the site, as they maybe add new things or take them away. If you look there, it will tell you everything you get for your money now.

    Good luck :)

    I honestly feel like I just wrote that!!

    I have never tried just the online but when I do it off my own back and dont go to class, it's easy to cheat! The scales at the class do not lie!
